But Men Loved Darkness Rather Than Light 

by Richard Crashaw


The world’s light shines; shine as it will,

The world will love its Darkness still:

I doubt though when the World’s in Hell,

It will not love its Darkness half so well.

From Poems Every Catholic Should Know compiled by Joseph Pearce
